Death is not a problem. Death is a job, death is your partner in life, death is a daughter, a sister, a mother. The two children knew it and they had learned to grow in that old shop that smelled of consecrated ground.
How many times had danced to the tune of a requiem? How many times had sung with a haunting and innocent smile and the words of the Dies Irae? The whole of their lives focused on a constant Lacrimosa, imperious and majestic.
As they passed everyone doffed their hats, they were the sons of the undertaker and as such they carried behind so many fears, so many suspects, many voices.
But once those whispering voices were right. The hands of an innocent child had been sold to the death in order to continue his work.
From house to house, from bed to bed, from street to street all life was severed at the end of the sand in the hourglass.
Which horror if not to see the death-child? Which horror if not to know that the love between brother and sister made ​​them accomplices? I don’t blame them, because they’re just waiting for you.


Dance for me

Uno, due, tre…
Again... one more effort.
Uno, due, tre…
The road to get to the top was difficult and time consuming but if you really wanted to be able to cross the forest had to follow the light, sooner or later would be able to grasp that cloud that would take her away.
Alice, don’t look down, don’t let yourself be seduced by those sugared almonds, from the chatter and the ticking of the clock.
Take my hand and back to the surface…
Uno, due, tre…



I wish...

Just a dream, something that she would have really wanted to ...
She had woken up in the middle of the city but she couldn't remember who she was and where she lived. She looked at her clothes, sumptuous and beautiful. The black of her dress was regal as it was rich in gold embroidery that the bandaged the body showing off her beauty and grace.
With graceful step she began to look around, why she had the impression that he had never seen it that way the city?! Was she the same person?
The streets were invested by a thin fog that made the outlines of everything less clear and much more fascinating and ambiguous and, as pushed by a breeze, she crossed alone the city that seemed to be unaware of her presence and in the end her heart and her shoes carried her in front of an abandoned theater.
The skeleton of an imposing place where art had come to life so many times.
Uncertain and confused she entered taking care not to be injured by glass fragments upon the ground, on top of an old carpet left to rot in its colors and fascinating texture of old patterns.
There was no one but she thought he knew that place…
She had lived there, didn’t know when, didn’t know how... and she couldn’t remember why.
Suddenly a noise behind her made her wince, and turning she noticed that a crow was watching.
“Welcome back sister”, it said.
The beautiful girl didn’t seem to figure out if she was dreaming or if it was reality and she replied shyly, “I’m sorry, but… I don’t think you…”
The croaking of the raven interrupted the young girl and its echo resounded throughout the theater as a hoarse laugh.
“Oh young and silly sister, it’s normal that you don’t remember me… Your wish has been granted but it's been too long so that you may remember. At the end you're back home again my little girl. Did you like the world? Did you find anything? Have you known the reason for so much beauty?”
The girl tried to explain that she didn't remember anything and that the city seemed distant and deserted ... her legs wanted to take her to that place, but the Crow seemed to already know in advance her words and her thoughts and it just croaked a second time before opening the black wings like waiting for a hug.
Its embrace enveloped them, and a swirl of black feathers darkened the faint light that filtered through the broken glass, from which-after a moment-it was possible to glimpse two ravens fly away to a secret destination.



Good morning

Creatura spietata
dalle curve sinuose e dalle labbra fatte
di puro miele e veleno.
Lasci il mio cuore
sull'orlo di un baratro mentre
cerco disperatamente di non lasciarti tornare
nella mia fantasia.

Tu mi osservi con quell'aria da belva feroce
mentre io mi distruggo
sotto la gentile carezza dell'alba.
Ero io con te questa notte?
Il mio ardore non cede ma tu
mi conquisti ad ogni sospiro.

Sia dannato il giorno in cui
ho dato a te il mio cuore.


(Merciless creature
with sinuous curves and lips made
of pure honey and poison.
Let my heart
on the brink of an abyss while
I try desperately not to let you go
in my imagination.

You look to me as if you were a wild beast
while I destroy myself
under the gentle caress of dawn.
Did we sleep together last night?
My ardor doesn' t give in,
but you conquer me with every sigh.

Damn the day that
I gave you my heart.)

Backstage!


I have to admit that it wasn't easy take 5 pictures for simple reasons: the rules were clear and it was not provided any editing, so everything is focused on the subject and originality of the photo, or at least on the graphics and what that you had available on your viewer, then another significant factor was the "idea "... which could be the right idea for one (or in this case 5 ) picture?
No, you cannot even imagine how many snapshots I took these days! Different skies , projectors, different poses! I thought I was going mad ! However I managed to find a compromise with my brain and my creativity using a hud very useful and simple(?): Chouchou Cinematic HUD. This HUD is used primarily to replace the director for recording video in SL, but since it doesn't change the quality of the picture and does not add any graphic effect but applies only two black bars... well... why not? It seems impossible to believe that they are the same photos! But the only difference are the two black stripes!
I advise you to buy it, it's completely free and you can find it in Memento Mori, I invite you to try it in this fantastic region and you will love the ChouChou - HUD.
